2nd POLANDAFRICA Congress, 17th November 2014, Lodz, Poland
Following the success of its first edition, the 2nd POLANDAFRICA Congress is scheduled for this Year. This event, organized by the Central Poland Chamber of Commerce, Lodz, the African Institute, the Lodz Regional Development Agency and the Polish Agency for Information and Foreign Investment will take place from 6th-7th November 2014 in Lodz, Poland.
The objective of the Congress is to promote development of business relation between Poland and Africa, particularly with the countries under the Polish government GO AFRICA’ programme, namely Kenya, Nigeria, Angola, Mozambique, South Africa and Algeria. The Congress programme will see discussions and exchange of views on the Agriculture sector, Food Industry, Machinery and Equipment, Energy, Mining, and topical issues on the SME sector, among other thematic issues.

The Congress is expected to attract representatives of the Polish government and the governments of African states as well as national investment agencies, representatives of local government and business organizations and entrepreneurs from Africa and Poland. On the side-lines of the Congress, an expo will be held where Polish and African companies will have an opportunity to showcase their products and services. During an official visit to Poland in April 2014, the Cabinet Secretary for Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, Mr. Felix Koskei held meetings with his Polish counterpart, where it was agreed that Kenya be invited to participate in the Congress to promote and market itself as a preferable trade, tourism and investment destination. To this end, the organisers have indicated that they will provide a free stand to the Embassy for a country exposition. The organisers are further inviting delegations comprising government representatives, the private sector and Chambers and their membership to participate in the congress. Registration can be done through the organisers’ website www.polandaMca.pl/en . It is worth noting that Poland, with its rapidly developing economy, is the sixth largest economy in Europe and the economic powerhouse of eastern and central Europe and therefore a market worth exploring. The purpose of this invite is, therefore, to apprise you as above, for your consideration to participate in the congress.
